The last day to drop a class with a withdraw (W) grade is Friday of Week 8. All first-year students must meet with their academic advisor and instructor to drop a class. This allows the student to discuss the ramifications before dropping a class. After the last day to drop, students who have extenuating circumstances must appeal to the Student Affairs office for a Late Drop. The instructions for requesting a Late Drop can be found at: www.admin.mtu.edu/dos/latedrop.htm. For more information regarding W grades, see the September blog “Last day to drop without a ‘W’“.
